Marlan Maritime Technologies has announced the launch of its IRIS ONEbox, a cost-effective turnkey solution that allows ports of all levels to access the right tools for enhancing safety, security and risk mitigation capabilities.
At a cost of £30,000, port and harbour authorities are now able to implement a reliable, easy to use, feature-rich, low maintenance turnkey VTMS (Vessel Traffic Monitoring System) solution. The system is installed by Marlan’s experienced team and includes a radar, camera, AIS, VTMS software, professional charts and an operator workstation.
Marlan managing director Alex Sinclair said: “We’ve been selling similar systems to this for a long-time and realised that a significant amount of cost is attributable to the semi-bespoke nature of VTMS projects. Through market research and ongoing discussions with our customers, we have identified a gap in the market for a feature rich, cost effective turnkey VTMS solution that gives peace of mind to small and medium sized ports and harbours, hence our IRIS ONEbox solution,” He added: “We’ve worked with many ports and harbours in the UK and with this launch look forward to making our products accessible to those who previously thought that VTMS was too expensive.”
IRIS ONEbox is based on Marlan’s successful IRIS Traffic Manager VTS system, which is installed in ports, harbours and maritime surveillance applications both within the UK and internationally.
